You might not get another chance. So grab this opportunity. Forget about what others say. Cry out, because Jesus of Nazareth is passing by (Luke 18:37).
Others who are not so desperate as you; others who are already walking along with him might tell you to shut up. Oh, don’t commit that mistake, for Jesus of Nazareth is passing by!
Because of the loud cry of the blind beggar Jesus stopped. Yes friend, Jesus lived in a home in Nazareth. He perfectly knows what is desperation. The loveliness of the incident is Jesus stopped. He will stop for you too when you cry out, “Have mercy on me!”
But the next question is tough. “What do you want me to do for you,?” Did not Jesus know his need? Of course he did. But the blind man could have asked for riches or a comfortable house. So also Jesus is asking you. “What do you want me to do for you?”
The best thing about this incident is that Jesus is not too busy. He will stop to address your need when you cry out to him. The question is: Are you desperate about your situation? Especially if you are spiritually blind, are you desperate to tell Jesus, “Lord, I want to see!”
